(Updated 6/10/2020) For people looking to support local Black-owned eateries, shops and services in the area, Tysons Reporter and Reston Now are working to compile a list of places open for business.
Since this is a crowdsourced “living document” — it will be updated regularly by one of our reporters or editors.
Several blogs, websites and social media groups have rounded up lists of local Black-owned businesses, including Feed the Malik, Vienna VA Foodies, Reddit and the Northern Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce.
People can contribute to the list by sending an email [email protected] with the subject line “Black-Owned Eatery and Business List Addition.”
“The best way [to help business owners] is to give directly if you can, look at your black-owned business and order from them if they’re still open,” Sean Perryman, the president of the NAACP Fairfax County, told Tysons Reporter.
Like other local businesses, Black-owned restaurants have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, Perryman said.
So far, businesses include:
- Amore Congelato (Reston Farmers Market)
- McLean Pizza (1434 Center Street)
- Caribbean Plate (133 Annandale Road E.)
- Pie Gourmet (507 Maple Ave W.)
- Mienne Beauty Supply (1880 Howard Ave Suite 105)*
- Arthur Christine hair studio (113 Park Street NE)
- Tysons Playground (8502 Tyco Road)*
- Perfect Planning Events (8201 Greensboro Drive)
- Mindstate Wellness Center (1980 Gallows Road)
*temporarily closed due to COVID-19
